1 The One Room School House Year Round Schedule What we do: Pre-planning Starts on the second Monday of July. School Starts on the third Monday of July. We arrange our calendar to match all days off on the district calendar. The School Year ends on the same day that district School Year ends. We have 183 days of regular school. We teach for 6 to 10 weeks and give a report card. (5 reporting periods instead of 4) After each reporting period, we do a week of tutoring during which there is no regular school. Tutoring is four hours each morning. Our Title One Teachers and some Classroom Teachers do the tutoring. During tutoring weeks, we sponsor a Day Camp, so that our families have a place to send their students while school is out. Day Camp and Tutoring week are held simultaneously in the mornings. All students have 11 extra full days of school before testing. For students who need to catch up or get re-teaching of standards, we get 19 extra days of targeted tutoring before the test. After the testing, our students immediately graduate to their next grade level with their new teachers and texts. Early graduation nets us an extra 30 days of teaching before the next testing date. 1

2 Research on Year Round Schooling Research literature generally suggests two academic arguments for year round school: 1. Year-round schooling boosts test scores and retention rates, and it leads to more effective learning overall because students are engaged in their education all year long. 2. Year-round schooling can be effective in closing the achievement gap between high- or middle-income students and low-income students who usually do not have the opportunity to attend summer camp, or another education substitute, that could sustain and maintain their academic gains from the school year. Esther Fusco, a professor at Hofstra University's School of Education, Health and Human Services, says that overall, "research suggests that students in high-needs districts and those who have disabilities do better in year-round learning situations. This is logical because these students do not have the down time that occurs over the summer." Also see: On the Clock: Rethinking the Way Schools Use Time, by Elena Silva, EDUCATIONSECTOR REPORTS 2007 P. Gandara, ed., The Dimensions of Time and the Challenge of School Reform (Albany: SUNY Press, 2000) David Farbman and Claire Kaplan, Time For A Change: The Promise of Extended-Time Schools for Promoting Student Achievement (Boston: Massachusetts 2020, 2005). 2

3 The One Room School House Teaching to the Test Philosophy and Initiatives We are a public school which is funded by the government to teach and test a government academic program. Our target students are economically disadvantaged and therefore academically disadvantaged. Because school is driven by industry, doing well on testing is the primary way for our students to succeed in academic AND work life. Therefore, we strategize to teach to the test. This will make a positive difference in our students future academic and employment success (regardless of our feelings about the content and nature of the curriculum and high stakes testing). A significant part of our strategy involves increasing opportunities to teach standards and prepare for testing. This can only happen BEFORE the test is administered. Therefore, we have developed strategies to increase the number of school and tutoring days prior to the date of the FCAT. Prior to 2013, we increased class time before testing by Early Graduation. All students graduated to their next grade level with their new teachers the day after the FCAT was administered. This gave us 6 to 7 weeks of extra time on the next year s curriculum. We noticed an immediate and on-going academic improvement. We also noticed that, after a long summer break, we still had to do a lot of re-teaching in the fall. Thus, the concept of a year round school began to morph from a vague dream to a concrete plan. 3

5 Rationale The One Room School House Project, which has operated a charter elementary school since 1997 and has recently added a middle school and VPK program, began exploring a year round school calendar. We expected immediate benefits from the year round school implementation including: extensive decompression of the common core curriculum (due to 8 extra weeks of teaching prior to the FCAT). opportunities for more extended curriculum (art, physical education, interest clubs, computer labs). increased and strategically placed planning time and tutoring opportunities (5 weeks of tutoring spread out over the year just for students who are below level). better coordination between teachers and tutors (deficient standards are recorded for each student and addressed during proximate tutoring weeks rather than at summer school or through retention). increased school days prior to high stakes testing (11 extra school days for all students, another 25 for students with material deficiencies). increased student retention of prior knowledge and skills (shorter summer break, more opportunities for intense re-teaching) increased preservation of high-quality student work habits (shorter summer break) greatly increased parental buy-in to the school program (parents buy in to the year round school and increased tutoring via a survey). 5

6 Factors involved in considering a year round school calendar. 1. Parental Buy In This is the starting point. Educate your parents Give them options Survey before acting 2. Teacher and Staff Buy In Show them the benefits. Are they willing to try something new and different? Will they work longer or merely different dates? Give them options Survey before acting 3. Your Sponsor At a minimum, you will need a Charter Amendment Possibly as little as a date change Find out how this affects district/school functions, agreements, services, etc. Food Service Financial Arrangements Transportation 4. Finances Is this an add-on, an extension, or a rearrangement? It shouldn t cost more if you are not adding days. The trick is to add days BEFORE the test. Not substantially more days. Title One will pay for tutoring on Tutoring Weeks 6

7 The Year Round Charter School: Decompressing the Curriculum Topics for Discussion Selling the year round concept to stakeholders and sponsor. Decompressing the Common Core curriculum. Creating Your Own Pacing Strategies Creating Your Own Tutoring Strategies and Calendar What we ve seen so far. YEAR ROUND SCHOOL SURVEY Do you support going to a year round calendar? WILL CLASS # STUDENTS RETURNED FULLY SUPPORT w NEUTRAL WILL NOT SURVEYS SUPPORT COMMENTS TRY SUPPORT VPK K K K ST ST ND ND RD TH TH TH TH TOTAL Results: 95% of families support the concept to some degree. 7
